Holes 18
Type Semi-Private
Style Links
Par 71
Length 6484 yards
Slope 125
Rating 70.7

The Links of Lake Bernadette enjoys verdant landscaping and a rolling terrain that are perfectly complemented by mature and towering pines. At 6,400 yards, the golf course is seemingly short but it feels like it plays much longer due to frequent doglegs that can be found throughout. Six of the par 4s play over 400 yards and a few par 3s measure over 200 yards, which also helps the course feel longer. Water hazards and bunkers come into play but they are balanced by large greens and wide fairways that make for easier approaches. Although beginners won't feel out of place and there are four different sets of tees, the golf course boasts several tricky holes that will challenge even the best players. One of these, the 163-yard 13th, was once called the best par 3 in Tampa Bay.

Course condition

The golf course is in a terrible condition. The tee off boxes have patchy grass and weeds. The putting greens are full of weeds and large areas are devoid of grass and the surfaces are uneven.
The cart paths are in poor condition with many areas of the cart paths are under water. There were 2 dogs without leashes and that ran towards us!
Overall, it was not a good experience. I will not play at this course again.

Good drainage, greens need some help

It has been raining for about 2 weeks, almost every single day; the drainage on the course is outstanding. We weren't playing in standing water, almost everywhere. However, we did have rain while we played, so some areas were underwater. The greens need some help, though, as many were patchy and some were under water. Overall, it was a great day on the links, and we had a good time playing. Great value.

Good fun course

Good course for causal players like myself. The greens need a little work but playable. Certain holes had poor drainage after the previous nights weather, which turned into mud or standing puddles in certain areas. However it’s a good course, and still had plenty of fun and will return!

Greens and tee boxes need help

We love the layout, but for $35, I expect a lot more of the greens and tee boxes. Both bare, bad shape. Not worth putting on, so picked up.

Nice Course

Greens were rugged, but it's a fun course to play occasionally. Much easier to get around when the snowbirds are not here. we play it about every three months.

Course Conditions

Most of the tee boxes and all of the greens were in horrible condition. This was unfortunate because this is not how I remember this course. I haven’t played here in a few years and unless conditioning improves, I won’t.

The worst greens I have played in years. I honestly wouldnt have been upset if it said it on the site when i booked the tee time that the greens were under repair but it didnt.
